Our first look at Evangeline Lily wearing her full Wasp suit, complete with the helmet on for Ant-Man And The Wasp has emerged online. The sequel to the 2015 Marvel Studios origins story that launched Paul Rudd as the shrinking superhero, Ant-Man, has been undergoing principal photography in Atlanta since August. And while details regarding the film are being kept tightly under wraps, some on-set photos pop out on the internet from time to time, giving fans some idea as to what we can expect in the follow-up film.
Although the synopsis for Ant-Man And The Wasp has already been released, it is vague enough to not give us anything specific regarding the narrative arc that the Peyton Reed-directed sequel will tread. That said, it appears it will be a highly emotional, family-centric film, especially for the Pyms as they try to find some answers regarding the current whereabouts of their matriarch, Janet, who will be played by Michelle Pfeiffer. As for Scott Lang, both his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) and her mother Maggie (Judy Greer) are expected to be back into the fold. Regardless of how the movie pans out, the introduction of Lily's Wasp will be imminent and now we have our first look at her wearing her upcoming full superhero garb.
The image has come courtesy of the Just Jared which posted a slew of snaps from the set of Ant-Man And The Wasp. In it, Lily is seen in-between takes and walking around the vicinity of the shooting location. Looking closer at the snaps, the full costume consists of a body armor layered on top of her tight-fitting suit, two electronic wristbands and of course, the metallic headgear. Like the suit, some tweaks are also noticeable from the helmet as it appears to have narrower eye slots and darker details compared to when it was first teased during Ant-Man's post-credit tag.

Some shots of Walton Goggins are also included in the gallery. Marvel Studios belatedly cast the Justified and Hateful Eight star in a still unknown role. Unfortunately, him sporting a generic white shirt and tie does not necessarily help in terms of pinning down what his part is in the sequel. It's interesting that he and Lilly are presumably in the same area during filming, but they could just be shooting separate sequences that aren't connected.
While we have seen Lily don the costume in few social media posts, this is the first time that we are seeing her with the helmet on. Last month, the actress debuted her suit via a tweet in celebration of what would have been Jack Kirby's 100th birthday. A few days later, the Lost alum was again snapped, this time, with Rudd and the Atlanta crew of Marvel Studios for a fundraising campaign to help those who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Both actors were suited but without their headgears, giving us head-to-toe look at the two's respective suits.
Aside from Goggins and Pfeiffer, Ant-Man And The Wasp is also set to introduce Marvel newcomers like Laurence Fishburne who will play Dr. Bill Foster, Hannah John-Kamen taking on the role of Ghost and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. Meanwhile, fan-favorite Luis played by Michael Pena is likewise expected to reprise his role as Scott's buddy/side-kick.
